I've mentioned this before and I've searched the forum but I don't see a definitive outcome. Maybe I missed it. Nonetheless:
I find that I will keep the My Unattended Computers list open or when I open it, if one notices the pastel data in the lower left hand corner it says: e.g. "Refreshed 4 days ago"
The list is worthless if it's 4 days old; or 1 hour old. The list should refresh itself frequently in order to be in the main stream of applications - web-based or not.
Here is an example: I just tried to connect to a computer that I need to work on. I couldn't find it on the list! We had changed its IP address and I had changed its label/name accordingly. Eventually I figured out that the list was quite stale. I *do not* remember this being the case in the past so it's always a big and unwelcome surprise.
So, can it be done? If not, why not? What's the rationale? At least if one understands then they might not be so bitchy.
